To my understanding, UCS-2 and UCS-4 are the names of
Character Encoding Form (CEF), not Character Encoding Scheme
(CES), and as CEF doesn't include byte serialization
mechanism, it can't be a coding system.  Only CES (UTF-XXX)
can be a coding system.

But, I don't know the definition of UCS-2BE.  Is it just a
limited UTF-16BE (limited to BMP)?  Where is it defined
